We've been busy setting up the Christmas tree at CO+K HQ and have made a wishlist of new decorations to make. Here are our top five:
We love Carotte & Lychee's paper snowflake. These would look great on the tree, hung from the ceiling or taped to the windows. Check out tutorial here.
These look amazing and it's hard to believe they're made from plastic bottles. These would also look great hung in your window. Check out the how-to here.
3. Sequin Balls
These sequinned baubles are so glitzy and would be perfect on a glamourous tree. Check out the how-to here.
This cardboard wreath looks modern and arty, while recycling your old coffee sleeves. Good for the environment and your Christmas. Check out the tutorial here.
These snowmen are so adorable and d'ya want to know the best thing? They won't melt and leave your friendless. Check out the crochet pattern here.

Back in March, we ran a contest to Accessorize Audrey Kitching, where we gave you the chance to see your creations modelled by Audrey in a photoshoot. She was so impressed with creations that she ended up picking three winners instead of just one and today, we're so excited to bring you the photos from the shoot!
1. Women's Wear Daily Dress by ElizsaC
ElizsaC made a gorgeous, fully wearable dress out of Women's Wear Daily magazines and clear tape. We think she did a stunning job!
2. Leather Shoulder Piece by Flo
Flo made an incredible shoulderpiece using leather from old shoes, belts, bags and a suitcase. She then wrote the stories of the people who had owned the items on the leather parts. Amazingly, she didn't even use a pattern to make it!
3. Crazy Platform Shoes by Kymberleigh
Kymberleigh made a pair of super tall and super glittery platform shoes. These amazing platforms are made from Converse glued on top of stacks and stacks of flip-flops which have had their straps cut off before being decorated with sparkly ribbons. It's such a genius idea!
